Default Bush DAC 10 push button label

I've recently started to restore a dac 10 ,and while I'm waiting for the capacitors to arrive I've started to restore the case, the bakerlite has responded well to T cut and wax polish. the problem I have is that 2 of the push button labels are missing.

Has anyone managed to reproduce an acceptable replacement? ,
And if so how ?
I'm assuming that the originals were printed on celluloid,
Is there anything similar that can be printed on in an inkjet printer ??

See if these are any good. Ones I made years ago, but there are probably better ones online somewhere now. They should print out the correct size.

There's probably a Bush expert here who has some better scans.

I printed on paper with a colour printer and laminated the sheet and cut them out. But they will look different to the originals...

I had a couple missing on mine and I found some milky plastic sheet off some sort of packaging, and I used letraset which worked fine.

A few years later I found the original ones stuck at the bottom of the cabinet

The only things I found stuck in this cabinet were mummified eons ago,
I've found some printable plastic sheets,I might have a go with that and see how it goes.

I think these are to scale if of use.

Thanks there the one's my plan is to print them on to waterslide paper then apply them to an opaque plastic sheet, to retain the aged look,
I'll let you know how I get on
